SEED DISPERSAL

After seed germination, a new plantlet will grow, and grow and grow

A plant will grow and bloom; the flowers (which are the reproductive organs of a phanerogram plant) will turn into a fruits and the fruits contain the seeds.

But, plants can’t walk or run. They are fixed to the ground by the roots. Have you thought about how plants are dispersed throughout the world?

Well,  phanerogram plants grow from seeds…. and seeds are dispersed by the wind (air),  water (seas, oceans and rivers) or  by animals…

YES!     WIND!    You see?  Everything is related….. hmmmm!  Interesting!
